Joan Wasser is a musican at heart. This soulful multi-instrumentalist started her career as a violinist. Though trained as a classical musician, it didn’t take long before she started to experiment with different genres like art-punk, pop, jazz and R&B. She released her first solo album under the pseudonym Joan as Police Woman in 2006 and it was an instant succes. After this, things went fast for the American singer-songwriter. She released 6 albums and collaborated with artists like Lou Reed, Rufus Wainwright and Anthony & the Johnsons. For the first time since 2006 she will tour solo, promoting her new record ‘Anthology’ which is a homage to her former musical highlights.

This concert is seated and will take place in the Main Hall. 

Wasser is proof that veteran musicians can finesse and surprise
